TARBORO 

Tarboro is one of the most attractive towns in the South, socially and 
physically. 

Every convenience of our complex civilization has been provided within 
the environs of Tarboro. Excellent schools, a wonderful park shaded 
by century-old trees, well-lighted and paved streets, municipally-owned 
and operated electric light plant, fire department and apparatus, and 
a pasteurizing plant, assuring "milk fit for babies." 

The banks of Tarboro are exceptionally strong, and take an intelligent 
interest in the upbuilding of the town. There are twenty-five lumber 
mills in the surrounding country, fine cotton and oil mills, three cotton 
mills and three knitting mills, two guano factories and two buggy fac- 
tories. 

Tarboro has good transportation facilities, and has water transporta- 
tion also by means of Tar River. The building of good roads has made 
great progress of late, and no country has better roads in the eastern 
portion of the State. The climate is mild and the growing season long. 
Cattle, hogs, sheep, corn, oats, cow peas, Irish potatoes, tobacco, wheat, 
melons, apples and fruits of every kind grown in the South are grown 
here. 

Write the Chamber of Commerce for information.

ROCKY MOUNT 

Rocky Mount is situated in Nash and Edgecombe counties. Lines 
of railroad run out in all four directions, the service, both freight and 
passenger, is satisfactory and convenient. It is no idle boast to say 
it is truly a "railroad center." It is a terminal of six railroad lines. 

The main resources of Rocky Mount are naturally of agriculture. 
The city is situated in the very best farming section of North Carolina. 
Everything that is raised anywhere in the South is raised here. 

The great shops of the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad are located here 
and give employment to over 3,000 men. 

Rocky Mount has five tobacco factories, two cotton-seed oil and fer- 
tilizer factories, a large spindle cotton mill (the second oldest in the 
State), a hosiery mill, several lumber and wood- working factories, two 
ice factories with capacity 140 tons per day. 

There are more enterprises than can be mentioned in the small space 
allowed to us.

TRUCKS 

When you buy a Motor Truck you make a business 
investment, you buy something for service. You i 
don't care much about the beauty of the body or the 
grace of the lines— it's PERFORMANCE that counts. 
To sell a motor truck we wouldn't want to come 
around and take you to ride to convince you — a truck 
isn't built for comfort, either. The best demonstra- 
tion we can give you is the PERFORMANCE of a 
truck in our own service. Watch ours. 
If you are at all interested in Motor Trucks, we will 
be glad to show you some very interesting facts.

BATTLEBORO 

Battleboro is situated on the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad, eight miles 
from Rocky Mount. The railroad is the dividing line between Nash 
and Edgecombe. It is a very progressive and hustling town, the people 
among the best in the State. 

It is noted for its excellent schools. It has fine farm lands in excellent 
state of cultivation. It was once the largest market for Spanish peanuts 
in the world. Several breeders of livestock make a specialty of pure-bred 
Hampshire hogs. 

The principal industries and manufacturing plants are Battleboro OH 
Company, Battleboro Ginning Co., blacksmith and automobile repair 
shops. Special inducements are offered to cotton mills.
